Shedding Some Light on Treatment for Toenail Fungus

Do you hide your feet in closed toe shoes? Are your nails unsightly or painful? Are you embarrassed to have, or have been refused, a pedicure in a salon?

If you are tired of unsightly toes but have been putting off treatment because you have heard that treatments are ineffective or may pose a risk to your health, it is time to schedule a consultation for laser treatment.

An Exciting New Treatment

A breakthrough in treating toenail fungus was introduced in the fall of 2008. This non-invasive procedure kills the fungus while leaving the nail and surrounding skin unharmed.  It has a reported effective rate of approximately 88 percent and it poses virtually no risk to the patient.

How long does it take?

The treatment takes approximately 10 minutes per foot. Results are often seen in approximately 16 weeks; however, it takes about a year for the nail to grow out. While you cannot see results overnight, your nails are continually growing, and you can see the healthy nail start to present itself at the cuticle.

How does it work?

This therapy operates under the principle of photochemistry by enhancing the natural processes of the immune system and impacting the structural integrity of the fungal strain. It is believed that the therapy provides a mechanism to effectively treat clinical mycosis, the infection, without any adverse effects. The procedure does not impact healthy tissue and the treatment is painless.
